What is the Paleo diet?
The Paleo diet is based on foods that our ancestors ate on the Paleolithic era 2,5 million to 10 000 years ago. The diet is based on the thought that we are still 99% cavemen: Our bodies are still genetically programmed to thrive on foods that the cavemen ate during the Paleolithic era.
The Paleo diet is also known as the Paleolithic diet, Primal diet, hunter-gatherer diet, the caveman diet or the stone age diet.
So what did our ancestors really eat? They were omnivores eating fruits, vegetables and animals.
